I am always reading something, mainly historical fiction, fantasy, or science fiction type stuff. Right now, I'm on The Gates of Rome by Conn Iggulden.

I'm reading the illustrated version of Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist. Last week, I read Manuscript Found in Accra by him.

The Running Man by Stephen King, again.

His books are infamous for printing typos but you got to love the colourful colloquialisms.

If you appreciate the horror of big brother with the subversion of media entertainment to control a populace I can recommend this.

My aunt, who's a protestant pastor is a huge Bonhoeffer fan.

I'm a big fan as well.  I tried reading his book, "The Cost of Discipleship" years ago.  Wow, what a heavy, thought-provoking read.  I am also interested in reading some of his other writings that I learned about in the biography.

Re: Readers's Post: What BOOKS are you reading, if your hardware is OFF?

This is one of my favorite little threads.  Well, getting closer to my goal of 13 books for 2013!  Last year was 12 as you might guess.  Just finished the Mistborn trilogy!  Started Warbreaker today.  Can't wait for Words of Radiance to come out this fall.  The Stormlight Archive is my all time favorite series.

Re: Readers's Post: What BOOKS are you reading, if your hardware is OFF?

The Linux Bible and  Last Battle: The Classic History of the Battle for Berlin by Cornelius Ryan--IMHO a fine work of historical prose.

"The Battle for Berlin was the culminating struggle of World War II in the European theater, the last offensive against Hitler's Third Reich, which devastated one of Europe's historic capitals and marked the final defeat of Nazi Germany. It was also one of the war's bloodiest and most pivotal battles, whose outcome would shape international politics for decades to come.

The Last Battle is Cornelius Ryan's compelling account of this final battle, a story of brutal extremes, of stunning military triumph alongside the stark conditions that the civilians of Berlin experienced in the face of the Allied assault. As always, Ryan delves beneath the military and political forces that were dictating events to explore the more immediate imperatives of survival, where, as the author describes it, "to eat had become more important than to love, to burrow more dignified than to fight, to exist more militarily correct than to win."

The Last Battle is the story of ordinary people, both soldiers and civilians, caught up in the despair, frustration, and terror of defeat. It is history at its best, a masterful illumination of the effects of war on the lives of individuals, and one of the enduring works on World War II"  Amazon.com

Re: Readers's Post: What BOOKS are you reading, if your hardware is OFF?

Just got Bertrand Russell's "Roads To Freedom: Socialism, Anarchism, Syndicalism" Gonna start this evening. Anybody (annoyingbeggar?) know what I'm in for? I've never read something from Russell before, but from the little that I know from him, he could be my kind of philosopher.

Edit: I changed my mind. I'll start Orwell's "Down and Out in Paris and London" tonight. He's my favourite author currently.
